Firstly, might I apologise profusely for "my message" which in fact was posted by my son, aged 17, and a know it all one at that. I couldn,t believe it when I saw my name there. He is anti-Iraq war, and as you say, it is his right to have an opinion, but I am really annoyed at him for this. He and his friend thought it was a hoot. I think a lot of countries, Ireland included, have a memorial day and indeed it is an emotional time, and especially for service people and indeed , relatives of those victims of war. I add my sentiments to those of everybody else and once again apologise for that unfeeling, uncaring message.

So sorry

    Margo -

    Thanks for the note. I respect your son's opinion. I doubt you will find anyone anywhere who is pro-Iraq war; least of whom the people of the coalition forces over there toting a gun.

    I do hope he noticed that I included UK war heros in my post!

    Unfeeling - ah, he was doing his job as a kid (that being annoying his parents - he appears to be doing his job well!)

    Uncaring - Not sure; he seems to care about the issue and was expressing his views. An admirable thing.

    Cheers - and prayers for peace in a region that has known no peace in over 2,000 years...

    How very brave of you to "own up" to your son's post. It really wasn't that bad. Remember, opinions are like ****, everyone has one. I personally am not real supportive of any war either but my mothers only brother was shot down (he was a pilot) in WWII. I get very emotional with her on this day.

    Hugs, Lisa P.
